Following the regular sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to people living within the South Eastern part of Nigeria, the Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) has notified its customers of its plans to embark on what it described as an ‘intensive revenue drive’, as from Tuesday.

The revenue drive, according to EEDC’s management, will take off on Tuesday and end on Saturday.

EEDC’s Head, Corporate Communications, Emeka Ezeh, in a statement on Monday, revealed that some officials of the DisCo (Electricity Distribution Company) will be on the streets to recover all outstanding bills from customers which were not paid due to the sit-at-home restriction.

“The Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform her esteemed customers that it will be embarking on intensive revenue drive starting from Tuesday, 25th January to Saturday, 29th January, 2022.

“This is to enable the company cover up for the lost days occasioned by the imposed sit-at-home order and insecurity situation in the South East, a development that has impacted greatly on the company’s revenue and efficient operation.

“As a result, EEDC officials will be visiting customers for payment of their energy bills, and will disconnect those that are owing,” he said.

He pleaded with customers to comply with the directives of its officials who are going to be approaching them for payment, adding that they can choose to visit EEDC’s payment offices to clear outstanding bills.

“EEDC therefore appeals to its esteemed customers to cooperate with its officials that will be visiting them during the period, and advises those yet to pay their bills to quickly visit the EEDC cash offices or any collection agent nearest to them, to pay their bills.

“Payments can also be made through the various online channels, these include: EEDC Connect, Energy Pay (via EEDC website: www.enugudisco.com), Bank Apps, etc.

“EEDC assures its customers of her continued commitment to delivering quality service to them and count on their support during the period of the revenue drive,” Ezeh stated.
